What are Wall Street analysts saying about eBay stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about eBay stock:
  • 1. Stifel Nicolaus analysts commented, "We believe the eBay / Square partnership will benefit both companies as the collaboration will enhance the financing process for eBay’s sellers as well as help Square expand its reach in non-Square merchant lending." (7/19/2018)
  • 2. Guggenheim analysts commented, "We remain NEUTRAL and could look to potentially become more constructive with our views if signs of GMV growth acceleration to +DD materializes. In 2Q, U.S. Marketplace GMV growth slowed +6%, below our expectation for +7% growth. While eBay continues to invest heavily in its website/product experiences and advertising, the company noted 1) it expects several key initiatives will take longer to materialize than planned, including structured data benefits, and 2) brand advertising campaigns have not yet ‘moved the needle’ in terms of consideration. In terms of new product-based experiences on the site, new users continue to respond well (improved conversion), but conversion gains have not materialized among existing eBay users." (7/18/2018)
  • 3. Benchmark Co. analysts commented, "We do expect there may be some noise near-term as sellers are impacted by the shift to product-based shopping, but much like Zillow (ZG:Buy) cleaned up the lower-tier agents, we expect this move will shunt more traffic over time to higher quality, better converting merchants." (4/26/2018)
